SS&C ALPS Advisors partners with Blue Tractor and GSI Capital Advisors


SS&C ALPS Advisors has partnered with Blue Tractor Group and GSI Capital Advisors to expand its business into semi-transparent ETFs. SS&C ALPS has filed a short form exemptive relief application with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to offer semi-transparent ETFs powered by Blue Tractor’s Shielded Alpha Semi-Transparent ETF Structure.

“We are committed to delivering strategies to improve investment outcomes for our clients,” says Laton Spahr, President of SS&C ALPS Advisors. “The ability to customise investment product structures defines the future of active management. Our new relationships with Blue Tractor and GSI Capital Advisors are key strategic components as we expand our solutions for innovative, alpha-generating boutiques.”

Blue Tractor’s Shielded Alpha ETF structure is a wrapper that facilitates the management of actively managed portfolio strategies within an ETF rather than a traditional mutual fund. Along with the benefits of an ETF – including potentially lower trading costs1, greater tax efficiency and intra-day trading liquidity – Blue Tractor’s proprietary structure is designed to safeguard an advisor’s active portfolio management and trading strategy.

“SS&C ALPS Advisors has led the industry by making new and innovative products available to investors,” says Terry Norman, founder of Blue Tractor Group, LLC. “We’re thrilled to be working with them, helping to support the introduction of these active portfolio strategies to their clients in a way that benefits both asset managers and investors.”

“GSI Capital Advisors is excited to be partnering with SS&C ALPS Advisors and Blue Tractor to develop a new and innovative investment product that allows small and large investors access to some of the industry’s most successful investment managers and our proprietary investment strategy,” says Craig Leupold, CEO of GSI Capital Advisors.
